Yue Minjun, Beijing
Yue Minjun, The Crowing with Thorns, 2009 via Pace Beijing
China is still blowing up art-wise. The colors in this piece are fantastic. Yue currently has a show at the the Pace Gallery in Beijing (sadly so far!) from June 6th to July 16th, 2011. I guess if you're in China, you should definitely check it out.
Minjun gained international recognition in the 1990’s for his political allegories, epitomized by rows of figures with grotesque smiles, commenting on Chinese communist ideology. The Road features Minjun’s signature grinning characters with strong reference to Christian iconography.
